Dr Crokes 0-09 Kilcummin 2-10 (March 21st)( Played in Lewis Road on Saturday March 21st)

Playing against the wind we had a very good first quarter and led at that stage by 0-3 to 0-2. Kilcummin dominated the second quarter, scoring 1-5 without reply, to go in at the interval, 1-7 to 0-3 in front.

 Aided by the breeze we started the second half very well, scoring three unanswered points and reduced the deficit to four points by the end of the 40th minute. In the next ten minutes our opponents got back their half time lead, scoring three points to our nil. We hit back with two points but a Kilcummin goal in the 57th minute ended the game as a contest. We had a consolation point in the last minute of the match.

Our best on the day were James Cahillane, Fionn Fitzgerald, Eoin Brosnan, Daithi Casey and Jamie Doolan.

Dr Crokes 2-05 Glenflesk 0-12 (Played Sun Mar 1st at Lewis Road)

In a game which we looked like winning at half time, we subsequently went down by a point. Our opponents deserved their win because of their good performance against the wind in the second half. We had led at half time by two points, thanks to two goals when playing against the strong breeze. Glenflesk managed twelve scores to our seven over the hour and took their points better than us, even though many of them were from frees. We had a chance to win the game at the death but our penalty effort was well saved by the goalkeeper.

The teams were level after ten minutes, scoring two points each.A Ruairi Mangan goal in the sixteenth minute put us three points in front. This was followed by a Glenflesk point and a goal for us by Gavin Tucker in the eighteenth minute to put us ahead 2-2 to 0-3. Our opponents had four points to our one in the last ten minutes, leaving us two points ahead at the interval.

We would have expected to gain victory, with the breeze at our back and a two point lead ,starting the second half. Glenflesk had other ideas. Three points without reply in the first ten minutes after the interval put them a point in front. There were many misses in the last twenty minutes. Both sides managed just two points. Then came our chance of victory from the penalty spot in the last minute, which was well saved by their goalkeeper.

Alan Kelly kept his goal intact. We were best served in defence by Fionn Fitzgerald, John Payne and Batt Moriarty. Ambrose O'Donovan had a very good game at midfield. Best in attack were Andrew Kennelly, James Fleming and Brian Looney.
